Default Truggy engine recommendations

I have a losi 8ight T 2.0. I have currently been running a Werks b5. I was looking to try a new brand of engine. I would like to continue using the Werks 2058 pipe with the new engine. Any suggestions. I would like to keep it at around $200.00

Just continue with the same brand. easier then changing brands and tuning styles all the time.

P5s are close to 240.00 now. Compared to 265.00 For a Fusion X5 lightning , at
that point I think the Fusion is a better deal.

REDS R5R is the perfect Truggy engine. You can't get more torque than that...

The nova p5 is great strong truck engine. $200 for an engine limits the choices

P5, Alpha A352, A852, S852, or Club Racer, Argus 23 or D52, RB Blast or Rally, Jammin JPX 21, etc.. The Alpha or Argus 23 though are really awesome.... No need to spend $300 on an engine...
